Quitin' my Bitchin' (Keyboard Shift key only)

Almost anything goes here!....

My replacement mechanical keys arrived today so I took my keyboard apart to replace the intermittent functioning shift key.

I get it torn down (lots of screws and hidden screws and I look atr the shift key backside to see how to remove and desolder.

Looky at what I found:

A poorly soldered pad. Resoldered and the shift key is great again.

After reassembling, my volume control roller no longer adjusted volume. An inspection showed 2 of the pins that connect it pushed away from the solder pads. Resoldered, reassembled again, and it works great.

Pretty shoddy soldering for a $200 keypad.

I have 5 extra keys now if I ever need them.

See you on the Mod Server....
